June 20, 2011Vintage Tiki Postcards Including A Weeki Wachee Mermaid
I’ve been digging around in our boxes of precious, precious collectibles lately (read: our junk room), looking for bits and things that I can use for art on some of our more…naked walls in the house.
While digging through one of Tom’s old boxes, I came across his mother’s collection of vintage postcards, which she had given to Tom. And I found a TON that would be great framed, alone or in collages. These are some of the tiki/beach-themed postcards that will eventually be on the walls of our future tiki room:
The Melanesian Ceremonial Men’s House from the Milwaukee Public Museum.
Vintage Maui postcard, 1976.
Romantic Cove on Jamaica’s North Coats, 1969.
“Beautiful waterway along Las Olas Boulevard, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida”, 1967.
Union Pier, Michigan, 1964.
“Lake Michigan with its beautiful beach makes Union Pier a favorite vacation and resort area.”
The Broadwater Beach, Biloxi, Mississippi, 1975.
Outrigger canoe, Waikiki, 1976.
Jack & Jill Ranch, Rothbury, Michigan, 1971.
“Where your every vacation wish comes true!”
And last, but not least, a Weeki Wachee mermaid postcard, 1968!
